Last year, Close Up brought romantic tele-dramas on Valentine's Day under the title "Kache ashar oshomapto golpo." This year the popular brand is producing three romantic fictions for their second season. These will be aired simultaneously from 8pm onwards on 13 channels on Valentine's Day.
The stories were chosen from thousands of entries, from audiences and fans, which was a part of a campaign Close Up launched in 2019.
The best three scripts were turned into tele-fictions by three of the popular directors of today. All the three dramas are now in the final stage of post-production.
First one, "Tomar pashe haat te dio" (let me walk by your side), is written by Sehjan Mahmud and directed by Anam Biswas of the film "Debi." Sunehrah Binte Kamal, fresh off the success of "No Dorai" plays the female lead. Opposite him is the new starlet Khayrul Bashar.

The trailer of the fiction gave the audience a sneak pick into the story, which revolves around the female protagonist who is in a wheelchair and her love interest.
"We dealt with tragic stories last year. This year we are continuing with the trend. My story is about a girl in a wheel chair and her doctor," Anam Biswas told The Business Standard.
Young director Nuhash Humayun directed "Shesta shobai jane" (everyone knows the ending). The story is written by Shahnewaz Mithu. Safa Kabir and "Ke hobe Masud Rana" finalist Junayed, will portray the lead characters.

Nuhash told TBS that he is very excited about his new project.
"I am working for TV after almost three years. I made 'Albatross' back in 2017. I have been making fictions for web, ever since. For a change, I really enjoyed making the drama for TV. Also, I never dealt with romantic subject matter before. This is a new experience for me," said Nuhash.
The young director also added that there are some surprising casting choices in his fictional piece.
Last but not the least, there is "Tomar kachei jabo" (I will come to you) – written by Zarine Tasnim Medha and directed by Tanvir Ahsan. The lead cast includes Sayeed Zaman Shaon, Ayesha Khan and Monir Khan Shimul.

"I have never worked with Close Up before. This is a new experience. We tried our best with the story, now it is for the audience to judge," said the director.
Music for the fictions were composed by Imon Chowdhury, Ahmed Hasan Sun and Zahid Nirob.
However, the producers have not decided about the digital platform where the dramas would be released.
